This week REIWA members reported the total number of sales remained stable at 602 compared to 605 sales recorded on the previous week.

Unit sales recorded a significant decline of 16% over the week. This was lifted by the increase in land and house sales by 10% and 2% respectively.

Total properties listed for sale have crossed the 15,000 mark to record an increase from 14,634 to 15,084 this week, 6 per cent higher than the total properties listed for sale recorded four weeks ago.

This is the highest number of sales listings historically recorded in the Perth Metro Region.

Turning to the rental market, this week REIWA members have reported that properties for rent have also remained fairly stable over the last four weeks.
